At Children’s, we have experience treating a wide array of injuries and conditions in babies, children and teens, whether the issues are simple or complex. U.S. News & World Report consistently recognizes Children’s as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country, including us on its annual "Best Children’s Hospitals” list for more than a dozen years running. In 2021-22, Children's had four specialties rank in the top 10 and nine specialties rank in the top 20 in addition to earning accolades from area-specific accrediting organizations.
Because our pediatric specialists know what to look for as they treat growing kids, they can anticipate potential problems and work toward the best outcome for each patient. Our team also works with parents and guardians to involve them in their child’s care and help them learn how to help keep their child healthy. These are some of the top reasons why children and teens with injuries and illnesses should be treated at a children’s hospital rather than an adult hospital.
When you walk through our doors, you can take comfort knowing that our entire staff, from pediatric physical therapists to pediatric anesthesiologists and surgeons, has been specially trained to care for your child.
